8 Warning Signs
& Symptoms of CVI
(Chronic Venous Insufficiency)
 
Vein Disease Educational Handout Information
 
CVI or Chronic Venous Insufficiency is
the abnormal flow of blood through your veins
 
1. Visible Presence of Varicose or Spider Veins
Both are visible to the naked eye. If you can
see either of these on your legs, then you have CVI. Some varicose veins are
deep in the leg and are not visible.
 
2. Leg Pain or Discomfort on a Regular Basis
If you regularly experience burning,
throbbing, itching, heaviness, aching, cramping, tingling, stinging or numbness
of the legs, you may have CVI.
 
3. Tired or Heavy Legs after Modest Activity
If you experience fatigue accompanied by an
overall lack of energy after small amounts of exercise or after a short period
of time standing, you may have CVI.
 
4. Swollen Legs or Ankles Especially Late in the Day
Swelling in the ankles after prolonged
sitting or standing can be a sign of CVI. Some relief from the swelling can
usually be found by elevating the legs above the heart several times a day or
while sleeping at night.
 
5. Discoloration and Scarring of your Legs
Inflammation, redness, & rashes around
the ankles are signs of vein disease. Hyperpigmentation, bruising, or tattooing
of the leg with a dark brown stain can occur when CVI goes untreated. In advanced cases the skin begins to look and feel like leather.
 
6. Restless Legs or Cramps in the Legs at Night
If you have an uncomfortable tingling
sensation and/or urge to move your legs when you lay down at night to sleep or
rest, these are symptoms of CVI.
 
7. Eczema
Eczema is a form of dermatitis, which may
progress to a blistering, weeping, or scaling of the skin on the leg.
 
8. Open Sores or Ulcers on the Legs near the Ankle
Untreated CVI can result in sores called
venous ulcers. These sores can be slow to heal, ooze, be odiferous and embarrassing
to those who suffer with them.
 
Facts about Signs & Symptoms
The signs and symptoms of venous disease
manifest in different combinations from individual to individual. Nevertheless,
these can all be frustrating problems to deal with. They can lead to depression
and anxiety.
 
The important thing to know is that vein
disease is progressive, which means it gets worse with time. The longer it goes
untreated the more signs and symptoms you could end up dealing with. But the
good news is that it is treatable! And the sooner it's treated the easier it is
to manage.
 
Several of the more advanced signs and
symptoms can be stopped from ever appearing with early intervention! Without
treatment the disease can lead to a loss of independence and continued pain.
 
The Solution for Many is EVLA or Endovenous Laser Ablation
 
In a normal vein blood flows up by aid of tiny valves. In the
abnormal varicose vein, the valves do not work correctly and they allow blood
to flow down causing pain and inflammation. Dr. Sellers offers a new procedure
called EVLA. It ablates the diseased varicose vein with a tiny laser. It
enables patients to return to normal activity almost immediately -- with much
less pain than old procedures! And it is covered by most insurance providers.
Find more details on Dr. Sellers website or call today for a consultation.
